Laptop model: Tongfang GK5CN6Z
LG panel IPS 144hz
i7 8750H (UHD Graphics 630)
GTX 1060 (Non Max-Q)
The problem: I was able to successfully boot up a resolution of 1440p at 90hz, however, it won’t downscale properly to the 1080p screen, essentially an overscan problem.
I tried playing around with Intel’s onboard graphics settings (w/ the latest driver) using the scaling options. The setting that made the most sense was Scale Full Screen, but to no avail, overscan remains.
I suspect that if the 1060 card was connecting through the display panel directly instead of being tethered to the onboard graphics, this downscaling won’t be a problem. I don’t know what else to do.
Furthermore, the only way I was even able to create the custom resolution was to use Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) because Intel’s own on board control panel keep giving me “The custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity”.
